“Things happen because they are supposed to happen”
The conversation takes a deeper turn as Joey and Jason begin to discuss different outlooks and how they can manifest different realities. Focusing on patience and peace, the guys emphasise the benefits of a perpetual optimism and how positivity creates a cyclical pattern of progress, while negativity can create the opposite effect. Following on from this, the guys talk about the acceleration of growth humanity is experiencing and how it is affecting people. Jason then asks Joey how he personally deals with big changes in his life, Joey explains how he thrives whilst things are in flux and probably welcomes change more than most.
